My First Wedding Cake

Yipppeeeee! I did it! I baked my first wedding cake without much disaster except for a crack on the second layer when I push the cake dowel down a bit too hard.

Random CNY Cooking & Baking

 One of the many elaborate dining we had during Chinese New Year.....

Cream of Potato & Bacon Soup
Roast Pork Shoulder
Sliced and served with Apple Sauce
Apple Sauce, the all-time recommended sauce for roast meat but we prefer it with mushroom sauce.
Roast Chicken with Bacon and Chestnut Stuffings (inside)

The stuffings was great. My new favourite roast chicken style....with lots of rosemary, thyme and stuffings

Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce

Tomato Sauce made with plum tomatoes, mushrooms, olive and some rocket. Light and just right to go with all the meats that we have above.

End of the Tiger Year and Hop into the Rabbit Year

This will be my last post for the Tiger Year while I am waiting to welcome the Rabbit Year. My last bake for this year will be Potatoes Gratin with Bacon and Chestnut bits. I have yet to taste it as we are waiting for our home-cooked reunion dinner. I hope it turn out nice but from what I can see, I find it a bit too oily. Maybe I should have use low fat milk and half cream instead of full cream milk and double cream.

Anyway what done cannot be undone. Just like what we have done and achieved in the Tiger Year may not be what we expected. But there will always be the Rabbit Year for us to change and correct what we have done wrong and improve on what we have done right. Therefore, my wishing for all my families and friends for this coming Rabbit Year will be "Gong Xi, Gong Xi, Gong Xi Fa Cai! May our health, wealth and career hop hop hop to a higher level. Happy Rabbit Year!"

Tiger Year, see you again in another 12 years.......Goodbye.......
